Tears of Stigma – Listen to Our Cries

Cancer they empathize,

but don’t hear my cries.

Heart disease they empathize,

but won’t see my cries.

Diabetes they empathize.

but hide from my cries.

Even the flu they empathize,

but are afraid of my cries.

 Mental illness cries

they do not empathize.

Instead we’re blamed, biased and shamed

for having an illness we did not cause.

Mental illness survivors deserve much applause.

Accept, understand, and sympathize,

show respect, support, love and empathize.

Please listen and hear our mental illness cries,

so stigma will end and we can overcome, conquer and rise.
